The staff are very friendly at this hotel in this tiny village. The hotel has a lovely spa pool, sauna and steam-room. All the meals are buffet apart from those in the Bistro. The food is basic but good. The Aurora lounge is a disappointment as there is no way you can see the Northern lights from it as it faces onto the lit car-park and it is poorly furnished. We wanted a room at the back with a hope of seeing the lights from a balcony. Instead we had one overlooking the car-park so too much light pollution and no balcony.

... out in warm gear and snow shoes we trudged and crunched up the hill and through the trees like an army of aliens with head torches.

At first all we saw was a ...
... took my teddy bear sledging and out in the snow but I have the feeling he prefers sitting watching TV in the room!
In the evening we were taken on a coach to Keto Aurora, which is yet another of their log cabins but this one had a lecture and presentation about the Northen lights projected on the ceiling. It was all very nice but we expected to go to the research facility and see how they conducted the research on the Northern lights but this was not to be. Too scientific ...
... weather is still really cloudy which is a shame.
Went for a wander along some ofthe snowshoe tracks in the afternoon and had a catnap as I am so tired! Tried out the sauna but neither me or mum were that impressed. We only had it on half heat but we practically suffocated and it was kinda awkward ...
... sensation of the fresh cold wind on your face as you rush along through the beautiful winter wonderland.
On a few uphill bits you have to take one foot off the sled and kick along the floor to give the huskies some help, or even step off completely and run along holding the sled for a short section. This I tried on one occassion not realising how deep the snow was... so down my foot sank and suddenly I was being dragged along behind the sled. This was highly ...
